USDA announced this week that Digital Angel is the first ID tag manufacturer to gain approval for the use of its electronic tagging systems in the National Animal Identification System.

This designation indicates that the company’s products meet the standards of the NAIS and will allow Digital Angel to distribute tags using the program's official 15-digit animal identification number.

In March of this year, USDA announced the implementation of the official animal identification number and released guidelines for the manufacture and distribution of official AIN devices.
